CHINESE MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

SAN-HUANG

Chinese Ruler God

The Legendary Three Sovereigns

They ruled the dawn of China about five thousand years ago.

First was FU-XI, then SHEN-NONG, and finally SUI-REN. They are renowned for teaching mankind essential survival tips and how to make a living. After that the humans took over with the Five Kings (WU-DI).

If you look closely, you may notice that the SAN-HUANG are actually snake-like reptiles with human heads. Please don’t stare. Dragons are very beneficial in China.
